At first I dont really know why you like Shinso so much but after watching season 2, I finally get it... I get you my dude... I hope Min*ta die or something and gets replaced by Shinso... Give the boy some love...
Suppose an already evil person (e. g. a Jigsaw-esque psychopath whose idea of fun was kidnapping people and forcing them to go through life-threatening challenges) was hit with the akuma?
Dude, Alix already literally UNSPUN PEOPLE’S TIMELINES. And she’s a sweetie who loves her dad and weird watches! Not to mention her brother erasing the free will of every innocent passerby he could find and trying to sacrifice Alya to the sky-hole, which just … jfc, man, why so extra?? YOU ARE JUST A HALF-EDUCATED EGYPTOLOGY NERD, WHERE DID ALL THIS PENT-UP AGGRESSION COME FROM.
If Hawk Moth has any survival instinct whatsoever, he will never, ever, EVER butterfly anyone who’s even so much as jaywalked.
But actually, personally I’ve been getting the impression the butterflies actually won’t work on people who aren’t worthy of being heroes, at least on SOME level, since apparently champion-making is the Butterfly’s actual uncorrupted power. I still haven’t seen the whole series so maybe I’ve missed something, but a lot of people do seem to get butterflied through their sense of justice/rightness/WHAT THE FUCK THIS IS IMMORAL BULLSHIT, THIS IS WRONG, HOW DARE YOU, and also Hawk Moth seems to have to do a lot of waiting around when in theory the first Parisian road-rage incident of the day should be enough for him to kick into gear. So someone with actually genuinely EVIL traits and desires wouldn’t be butterfly-able, at least in my mind.
character: hate them | don’t really care | like them | LOVE them | THEY ARE MY PRECIOUS
ship with: Tien or Nail, or sometimes others, but those are really the big two I actively ship him with and desperately attempt to find content for. Or no one. I really like Piccolo by himself. Alternatively, Tien and Nail AT THE SAME TIME
brotp: Piccolo and Gohan have a wonderful platonic relationship and honestly it sustains me and is pretty much why I got into Dragon Ball in the first place
general opinions: Piccolo’s great and completely not cool at all and I love him so damn much

And now I’m gonna make you all feel bad for not trusting Shiro
And explain why new ugly hair Shiro is the Shiro we know and love.
First of all:
If this Shiro is a clone, operation “Kuron” would be fucking dumb.
Like real dumb.
And here’s why.
So like lets say they captured Shiro after the Zarkon fight and made a Shiro “clone” or whatever who’s goal is to infiltrate Voltron or something.
Atleast that’s what it seems like the goal is because this dude says
when Shiro escapes and they shoot his ship.
So like it seems like they let him escape on purpose.
Shiro nearly dies like 50 fucking times before he reaches Voltron (BY FUCKING MIRACLE)!!
I mean just think of ALL the coincidences that had to happen for Shiro to get to Voltron.
I dunno if he’s like the least lucky person in the universe or the most lucky, because of how he’s ALWAYS almost dying in some way and ALWAYS escapes death against all odds.
But that was one heck of an incredible journey there!
But seriously, if Keith wasn’t looking for Shiro non stop and Shiro didn’t connect to black in that very second, the Galra’s “clone” would have died. Their project “Kuron” would fucking FAIL.
I think if that really was the Galra’s goal to make a clone that would reach Voltron they would have made it a tiiiiny bit easier for him to survive somehow.
Just a tiiny bit.
They dun have to go THAT FAR to convince him he actually escaped and they didn’t just let him go. Just you kno, give him a bit of a push there when he’s starving in space or something (assuming they somehow keep track of him).
They dun have to go that far also for the viewers to fool em that Shiro escaped so him being a Clone would be a surprise later. I mean they just changed his hair a bit and no one in the fandom trusts him anymore haha.
So unless that ice planet and the universe is like filled with dead Shiro clones bodies who were eaten by monsters or froze to death or died of hunger or whatever, because of all times the clones didn’t make it, and the Galra were just waiting for that one special one that finally would, then I’m guessing that maybe something else is going on.
Because there’s no way that they’d just let him go like that and trust what? FATE to bring him to Voltron unharmed SOMEHOW???
Like that’s a dumb fucking plan.
So I dunno, unless the Galra know that no matter what happens Shiro and Keith always find eachother again and again like a pair of destined lovers.
I’m gonna say…
Complete bullshit. I dun buy it.
OK, Now how long has it actually been? Like how much time passed from their battle with Zarkon till they meet with Lotor? How much time passes until Haggar even summons Lotor?
What if it’s actually been longer than you thought?
What if it’s been like… I dunno, a year?
Thing is that when we go back to Team Voltron in season 3, they seems to think Shiro is gone, dead, like they act like they all moved on and Keith is the only one who’s still stuck there.
I doubt you get to that point after a day or two, or a week, or months even… (They love Shiro, I dun think they’d give up on looking for him after such a short time or get over his death this easily..)
It’s at a point where they all like “Ok Keith, that’s enough time to mourn, we all accepted it and you have to move on too”
I know they all look the same, and there’s not alot of indication of how much time exactly it’s been.
But it does seem like they’ve been doing
what they were doing (freeing planets, Pidge looking for her brother) for AWHILE.
This would explain Shiro’s long hair. It simply been long enough for it to grow that long since he disappeared.
(btw there’s a genetic thing that makes your hair grow really fast that also makes a flock of your hair white in the front, Shiro could totally have that)
Also the fact he can’t walk at first can be explained with him just not doing that for awhile.
Now when Shiro is finally free he SOMEHOW makes it to that Gas planet they were fighting Lotor at the first time.
Voltron is leaving the scene and Shiro appears and chases it here
I actually looked to see if we can see him but we don’t.
(I also didn’t realize it my first watch, and now every time I’ll see the 3rd episode I’ll be like “NoooOOOOOOOOOOOO you fools wait for hiiim!!!!”)
Shiro sees Voltron leaving him behind.
Besides the fact that he knows this is probably the end for him now, it also shows him two things:
They moved on.
And they are doing well without him.
Anyway, 7 days later, Shiro is dying, thinks of his Voltron days and connects to the Black lion in the last minute.
And Keith (who hasn’t stopped searching for him, now with black lion)
finally finds him.
Now besides the headache, I actually dun particularly see anything really strange about Shiro’s behavior when he goes back.
Watching it again I just got the feeling he just has a really hard time accepting what happened with Black.
I dun see a reason to not believe what Keith suggests there, that Zarkon teleported him to captivity using the Black lion.
Shiro seems upset about it because
What does it tells Shiro?
That his bond with black was still not strong enough.
Like, he had so much fighting spirit when he escaped before, and suddenly when he finally reaches Voltron he’s depressed in bed and seems like he doesn’t want to see anyone?
Like yeah he wanted Keith to lead Voltron, but I think maybe then seeing the team actually function without him and forming Voltron and fighting the Galra, and considering how much Voltron means to him and his struggle with his PTSD and how Voltron literally been the only thing on his mind when he was dying.
I think it’s a bit hard for him to accept what he sees when he comes back..
He sounds fake here
Because he’s not being honest.
Deep inside it hurts him to see they did fine without him.
When Keith goes “They need you”, he lies.
He’s the only one that needs him. The team has moved on. Maybe he says it because he can’t say “I” or feels like he’s not enough, maybe he’s trying to encourage Shiro, because he understands how Shiro feels, without Shiro needing to say anything. He always did. From the very beginning.
So maybe it’s like “Hey Shiro, I know how much this means to you and you’re still a valuable part of this team”
Shiro obviously doesn’t want to go back on his word and be all “Ok Keith, so give me back my lion now!”
But Keith does it for him, and I think you can see Shiro is very happy about it.
Only the lion won’t accept him anymore.
And before this you also have that scene with Lance doing math that I think connects the two
Shiro feels like Lance, he feels like he has no place on the team anymore.
But he doesn’t deal with it in the open, honest and good way Lance does. (which is the reason Black won’t accept him anymore, he’s not thinking of the team)
That’s why he butts heads with Keith over leadership in this episode, and we can see even in the season 4 trailer that it goes on.
I think his position as a paladin and leader of Voltron gave him control over his life back after what he’s been through. In a way that was how he coped with his captivity and his PTSD.
He’s obviously proud of Keith, but I think he’s also jealous and hurt.
I dun think he’s ready to accept he’s no longer leader or a part of Voltron.
(Like he’s proud of Keith, but he still puts him down saying “You’ll get there someday”)
And I think Keith understand where it’s coming from and he doesn’t buy it.
He puts himself down and says he can’t do this because he wants Shiro to feel needed and important.
And Shiro is doing what ya’ll Shiro stans have been doing for months haha, crying about him not being the black paladin anymore and how all his work on his bond with black was meaningless now that Keith is in it.
Shiro’s bond with his lion meant the most, he was the one who had to put the most effort into it. And suddenly, it gives him up. I think Shiro feels betrayed even.
And he’s not ready to do what Lance did with his lion yet and give it up for the sake of the team (maybe some Lance and Shiro bonding in the future??)
That’s why it seems like they are heading for a leadership conflict there. That Shiro would try to make Keith feel like he’s not ready for this. Unintentionally.
And Keith would continue to play along with it, (though being the more fitting person for the position of leader) because maybe that’s what he’s been doing all along from episode one. Trying to gently give Shiro the power and the control he lost when he was captured by the Galra, back. (Without directly confronting Shiro about his PTSD.) (would explain their odd dynamics)
Thing is Shiro is just not as good as Keith with leading Voltron. And I think he’s gonna mess up AGAIN.
It’s like we are back in square one, where Keith is the one that has the right idea in mind and no one listens and they all listen to Shiro who makes BAD decisions.
I see a bunch of people concerned about whether or not the new Doctor should have a male or female companion, and i raise you the doctor having like three or four permanent companions. If we are shaking things up with a new Female doctor, how about we shake things up instead of having the same exact tardis duo we’ve had since the beginning of New Who (Amy/Rory is debatable). I mean they have had periods of time where they had kind of a temporary/semi third or fourth companion who comes and goes (usually the girl companion’s love interest) but how about like three companions, from different TIMES or different PLANETS who don’t already know each other and who all stay. Lets watch how they all interact and try to understand each other. Lets see the Doctor having more than one person to lay all of her burdens onto. Why not a woc from the 15th century and like an alien dude or even a teenager or an old retired person? (Bring back captain jack even if its just for his reaction in one episode please). I don’t give a crap which one (if any) ends up being the doctor’s love interest, just give me some other dynamic than a single girl companion from our current era.
